I'm afraid i was disappointed with this Bible, from a practical view point. When it first arrived it seemed well-made and looked impressive. However, when i came to reading it, i found it heavy, clumsy and awkward and discovered it's easily dropped.
I think if you are a man with big hands, then this won't be an issue. However, if you are a woman with typically small hands, then the weight of this huge Bible could render it impractical for serious study and reading.
I found the pages very thin and flimsy for such a large Bible and the print looked a little too small. Neither did i find the print any clearer or easier to read, despite the single column. Which came as a surprise because all these claims about 'single column' reading being much easier on the eye... i had hoped for a noticeable difference... but can honestly say i found none!
I went back to my normal-sized, clearly printed, well laid out, albeit double-columned, Zondervan NIV Bible! Which too has the smyth-sewn binding to keep the pages lying flat - the only good thing about the Legacy Bible in my opinion.
And found this both easier to handle and to read.
I don't mean to be a kill-joy but that's just how it was for me.
I simply found this Bible too big and impractical and prone to sagging and dropping; which i put down to the very soft cover for such a heavy Book.
Perhaps the whole thing would have worked better in hardback..? I dunno.
